More Mitt Romney stuff.

Now he's pissed off the Cuban exile community. Sort of more proof to the thesis that in reality AIPAC is more like the Cuban-American Foundation than anything else. Just like with Cuba, the United States would have an interest in Israel without the lobbying but the continual donations and political pressure generated by both groups causes the U.S. to have an even harder line stance on Cuba and Israel, in relation to the Palestinians, than it otherwise would have had.

Anyways, Romney, was criticized by the ADL because he announced his campaign at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn. I can tell from personal experienc that the place is a Detroit landmark and an integral part of Detroit culture, and has zero connections with anti-semitism. It turns out that Romney is from Michigan and so knows this.

Now he's being criticized by the Cuban exiles in Miami because he used the phrase "Patria o Muerte, Venceremos" at a rally. This translates roughly into "Our country or death, we will conquer" or "overcome". It was used by Fidel Castro and so must be bad, and the exiles in Miami who he was speaking in front of didn't like it. Oh well.

Jesus Christ, look at the Elian Gonzalez case if you want to see how psychotic these people are. As for Israel, one day they're going to establish a new branch of logic based on the contortions that pro-Israeli politicians and writers use to justify the idea that Israel can break whatever human rights it wants to and yet still be called the victim.
